From: Developer's Page

PassMark PerformanceTest is an integral benchmarking program to our battery of standard performance evaluation software collection here at APH Networks. Using the latest version from the developer, again, there is not much to say here other than the fact that overclocked settings produce better results than stock settings results for obvious reasons. For your reference and convenience of pulling out the calculator, the performance increases here are approximately 16%, 19%, 17%, and 2.5%, respectively. Which one produced the lowest gain? If you have guessed 3D Graphics, give yourself a pat on the back.
